Chinese Gardens 1-18-2012

Postby infernoxd45 » Jan Wed 18, 2012 9:24 pm

I can't believe January 18th is the first day of the season for me, but better late than never! I hit the gardens since it seems to be the safest ice I can find around here right now. Lots and lots of small gills with a few eaters and 1 nice sized. I was alone save for 2 kids that were there for maybe an hour. They were catching pretty much the same. A few pics:

Test holes!

The flasher looked like this most of the time

This guy was itching to get back down a hole! :P

Big fish of the day

Nothing earth shattering but I was relieved to get out!! :app :auger :auger

There was a good 3" until you got to the back by the docks. Then it started to get skinny!
